A private game reserve filled with plains game invites long walks through animal corridors and woodland forests, up close and personal with the more delicate side of nature. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, holding some of the oldest known cave paintings in the world, as well as the home to Cecil John Rhodes’s grave, Matobo is cloaked in culture, heritage and ancient stories written in the rocks.
If one is seeking a location to soothe the soul, Matobo and its surrounds will willingly answer your call. Undulating granite hills, covered in colourful lichen and blanketed in history awaken one’s curiosity, and demands the respect of presence. Exploring ancient grain bins from cultures of old, spending time learning of traditional Ndebele rituals, exerting yourself to climb rock faces, or follow in the footsteps of guides to find rhino – activities honour the inquisitive. Or perhaps you would like to lie by the pool, cocktail in hand, absorbing the sounds of the wilderness.
